Best WW2 games?

Beware this is a small poll with only a few choices as i though they were the only decent choices of games on topic but if you have another your free to say.

Call of Duty, for sure. It has some of the most realistic gameplay in WWII FPS's.

Brothers in Arms. No contest for me.

I started out with Medal of Honor, mostly because of the awesome Omaha Beach landing segment (I feel abit wierd for saying that about such a horrid thing, but ... ), then switched to Call of Duty and then Call of Duty 2, but switched again when Brothers in Arms came out, and haven't looked back since.

Call of Duty. Although I can't say I have a real favorite, I play all of them, and I look forward to Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway and Medal of Honor: Airborne.

That's why there is MP. I challenge you! I'm really good at CoD3 online. I used to be with CoD2, but 3 is much better.

hmmm... i started my WW2 gaming addiction with MEdal of Honor, which stuck with me until the tradgedy taht was rising sun. Then i bought call of duty Finest hour, and i absolutely lovedit. Bought a brothers in arms game, road to hill 30 i think. I struggle to remember the name as it was in my xbox no more than 10 mins before being returned for a refund, which i then used to buy COD: BRO. I've stuck with COD ever since, and havn't looked back.


@Jebbers: Do you speak of COD3 online, xbox classic? If so,may i say that i join this challenge, as i am a little bit of a game demon on it myself

please not so many smiles. Yeah i agree COD3 is a very good game but looking at what i've seen from BIA it looks alot more realistic and i will buy the new Hells Highway if i have the right console on it's release date. Think it will be on PC?

hmm... It never fails to baffle when "realistic" is a word used to describe a VIDEO GAME about a horrific thing such as war. Rubbish.

War isnt 'awesome'

My parents fled to Australia to escape the civil war in Cyprus. Both of my grandfathers also served in WW2 with British(Colonial) forces chasing Rommel around Africa. Their stories about their experiences were simply terrifying, even now. Getting shot at in a computer game somehow isnt the same...

(Most of us, including myself) are very lucky to be in a situation where our lives have never been threatened by actual(not virtual nor perceived) war.

Sure, a game can be fun, but its only a game at the end of the day. I have only ever played COD2 because I have an interest in the Normandy Campaign. I know other games cover this but that was all I wanted to see really.. I have had the privelege of meeting some D-Day vets on a couple of occasions(US and German). Amazing chaps. Not all German soldiers were 'Evil Nazis' by any stretch of the imagination.

I've always liked COD the best. One of the best levels was from the expansion pack where you were gunner in a British bomber. Some intense stuff.

Good lord, it's no contest. Brothers in Arms is by far the most interesting of them all. I'm eagerly awaiting hell's highway for Q4 release this year.

Well BiA is very realistic, and cool. I like the whole tactical shooting idea and playing the game actually needs a brain and more than some fast wrists and twitchy fingers.

But when it comes to downright fun gameplay, CoD owns. I found using guns more satisfying in CoD, so Call of Duty wins for me, though I will always have a soft spot for BiA. Man, I have to sequels for both games...

Have any of you seen Band Of Brothers? The HBO series? Well if you watch closely you will notice that the town of Carentan is almost exactly the same as the Carentan map on CoD2. I was watching it and it looked so familiar to me. It is almost exactly the same in that the piano is in the streets, the upper left window is cocked open alittle bit, the fence next to the chicken coop.

I have the box set, and I should slap myself for not noticing that if it's true. Going to watch that part again when I have time this week.

When I first saw this thread...I was like "I have to get in on this." WW2 games are my all time favorite genre...and that's what they've become...they've evolved into their own genre. I started out with Medal of Honor: Allied Assault (and expansions) and I loved it...the single player was superb, and multiplayer was great (one of my first online experiences). Then...Call of Duty came along...I dunno how it did it, but it blew MOH out of the water. Wow. The production quality on COD was just unbelievable (especially the audio and graphics). Just overall, the COD series is and will continue to be my favorite (at least until I check out MOH Vanguard...which looks great)...we'll see though...but for now...COD all the way (I still play it a lot btw).



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out

Oh yea...it's like that in COD 1 too (minus the piano)...whenever I played COD, I am reminded of Band of Brothers. It just looks, feels and sounds like Band of Brothers...which is one of the best series ever mind you.

I'd say COD is probably the most detailed, but i wouldn't necessarily call it 'the best'. I've always been a MOH loyalist however, my fav. being MOH: Frontline. However there are exceptions to this, i much preferred COD: Roads to Victory on the PSP over MOH: Heroes, which sucked big-time. I think MOH has been overtaken at the time being by COD as the best WW2 franchise game, but with the upcoming release of Airborne, i think it will shift back in MOH's favour; which it deserves considering MOH was the first FPS to be set in WW2. MOH is good on it's simplicity i think that COD is too ambitious (i do like the PC COD 2, however). Did anyone ever play that PSX game Hidden & Dangerous? It was a total MOH rip-off and very, very bad. I don't play much of BIA, i feel that it's just another franchise 'jumping on the bandwagon' but i feel the franchise may get better in time.

As long as there aren't invisible walls or "conveniently" placed road blocks like there were in Frontline and Allied Assault...then it'd be amazing...don't get me wrong, they are great games, but COD was a little more subtle about keeping people confined on the maps.

BiA is a first person shooter, where you command a squad: A fire team, and an assault team (in some scenarios one of the teams are replaced by a tank).
Perhaps the more propper term for the game is an FPTS? First Person Tactical Shooter?

The aim of the game is to not do all the work yourself. It could actually get you killed.
Actually, it will get you killed.
Having said that, you can choose to do alot on your own, provided your squad is backing you up. Pinning the enemy down is vital for you and your teammates survival. You don't want the enemy to feel comfortable about popping there heads out to fire back at you, now, would you.
You'll find your teammates actually arn't worthless as in most other games, like MoH for instance, where you do most, if not all the killing, and to a lesser extent, CoD (I like CoD better than MoH actually). In BiA, their bullets are as deadly as yours. And they hit. You will always be a better shooter than them, but still, they are deadly. And so are the germans.

You'll do alot of flanking manouvers to take out the enemy. Most of the time they respond to it and shifts position to try and prevent your flanking manouvers, or they retreat to a safer and better defendable position. Or, they don't notice you're flanking them and they die.
In the second installment, Earned in Blood, you can actually be victim of a counter attack, and out flank you. If the AI sees an opportunity to flank you, it takes it, which - if you arn't paying attention - could end up disastrously for you.

The four F's:
Find them - no need for explaination
Fix them - Have your Fire Team lay down supressive fire
Flank them - Send your Assault Team around one of their flanks (or do it yourself)
and last
Finish them - Again, no need for explanation.

A frontal assault is rarely ever a good idea, as the germans will just mow you down as you advance.

DoD:S is fun, infact, I play it alot.

However, it's mod, and not a standalone game. You have to have Half-Life/Half-Life Source in order to play it. So it not being on there does make sense.
